Call For Papers

(this is a copy of the call from the AAMAS website, feel free to update with the genuine one)

*** 13th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems ***


AAMAS is the leading scientific conference for research in autonomous agents and multiagent systems. The AAMAS conference series was initiated in 2002 by merging three highly respected meetings: the International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (ICMAS); the International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages (ATAL); and the International Conference on Autonomous Agents (AA). The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally respected archival forum for scientific research in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multiagent systems.

AAMAS 2014, the thirteenth conference in the AAMAS series, seeks high-quality submissions of full papers, limited to 8 pages in length. Submissions will be rigorously peer reviewed and evaluated on the basis of originality, soundness, significance, presentation, understanding of the state of the art, and overall quality of their technical contribution. Reviews will be double blind; authors must avoid including anything that can be used to identify them. Please note that submitting an abstract is required to submit a full paper. However, the abstracts will not be reviewed and full (8 page) papers must be submitted for the review process to start. All work must be original, i.e., it must not have appeared in a conference proceedings, book, or journal. In addition to submissions in the main track, AAMAS 2014 will be soliciting papers in three special tracks. The review process for the special tracks will be similar to the main track, but with program committee members specially selected for that track. All accepted papers for the special tracks will be included in the proceedings.

In addition to the above, AAMAS 2014 will feature the following three special tracks.
Robotics (Chairs: Noa Agmon, Luiz Chaimowicz)

Papers that advance theory and applications of single and multiple robots are welcome, specifically those focusing on real robots that interact with their environment. Papers should clearly explain how the work addresses challenges in robotics, opportunities for novel applications, and fundamental research issues in autonomous robotic systems. The goal is to demonstrate the synergy achieved from integration of research in agents and robotics.

Virtual Agents (Chairs: Elisabeth André, Sarit Kraus)

Virtual agents are embodied agents that emulate autonomous human-like behavior in simulated interactive or physical environments. We encourage papers on the design, implementation, and evaluation of virtual agents as well as challenging applications featuring them. Of particular interest are papers addressing how humans interact with virtual agents. The goal is to provide an opportunity for continued interaction and cross-fertilization between the AAMAS community and researchers working on virtual agents and to strengthen links between the two communities.

Innovative Applications (Chairs: Tom Holvoet, Rajiv Maheswaran)

Due to the growing maturity of the field there are now agent-based applications in widespread use across many domains, responsible for the generation of significant revenues, or the saving of major costs, or for supporting important public policy and business strategy decision-making. This special track provides the ideal forum to present, discuss and demonstrate your compelling applications, agent system deployment experiences, and new business ideas. The goal is to promote the fostering of mutually-beneficial relationships between those doing foundational scientific research and those making autonomous agents and multi-agent systems a commercial or public policy reality.

General information

All full papers accepted to the main track and the special tracks will be presented in parallel technical sessions. All the papers will be published in the conference Proceedings and will be permanently available after the conference at In addition, AAMAS 2014 will include:

Posters presentations for full papers and extended abstracts
Invited talks and panel discussions

The submission processes for the workshops, tutorials and demonstration are separate from the main paper submission process. Relevant information will be posted on the relevant pages.
Policy on multiple and previous submissions

Authors may not submit any paper to AAMAS 2014 that has already appeared in an archival forum. Authors must ensure that no submission to AAMAS 2014 is under review for another archival forum between the AAMAS submission and decision dates.
